I bought a house recently, along with some family. I provided a massive down payment, and they provided the loan to purchase the home. Myself and the others all signed the title paperwork, providing myself as part owner. They now want to kick myself and brother out. He is not on the loan nor the... View More
The area where the person was recording was NOT visible from anywhere in view or even by air (think thick grove of trees). The person being filmed was clear about not being recorded. No crime of any kind was being committed by the landowner. The person filming was trespassing after being told not... View More
In Oregon, recording someone without their consent in a private place where they have a reasonable expectation of privacy is generally illegal. If you explicitly told the person not to record you on your property and they proceeded to do so anyway, their actions may constitute a violation of your...View More
If an easement holder has a "worker" do a job and that "worker" has a restraining order against the landowner, and the landowner has repeatedly requested in writing to the easement holder that they don't want the "worker" on their property for very oblivious... View More
I supplied a lump sum of money to put down on a house and asked my children to provide the loan, as I am disabled and do not qualify for a loan. They agreed and we all live in the home together. Myself and my children are all on the title together, but I am not on the loan with them. One of my... View More
If you have an estate as a tenant in common, then all TICs have the same rights of possession. You cannot be legally ousted by the other TICs. If they physically remove you, then you might have them arrested for a crime, and sue them for rent.
Sure a tenant can break a commercial lease - but they will continue to owe the rent until the sooner of either the lease expires by its own terms or a new tenant takes over renting the space (presumably for at least as much rent). If you can bring a new, replacement tenant, that might solve the...View More
The answer to your question depends on how the home in Oregon is titled. If the Deed shows both of their names as "husband and wife" or "tenants by the entirety" then the house belongs to your father and he has full authority to sell it and keep the proceeds. If it...View More
There is no Oregon law that requires you to provide any particular information over the internet for a real estate transaction. There are no civil or criminal sanctions for refusing this request. The request may be the realtors preferred practice, but you are not obligated to comply with the...View More
He might die. We don't have an Erickson Agreement. Can he sign something and send it to me so the house will be safely in my name in the case of his death? Please give me a wording for Right of Survivorship.
In Oregon, if you want to ensure that the house automatically passes to you upon the other owner's death, you can add a "Right of Survivorship" provision to your deed. The wording to create a joint tenancy with right of survivorship is generally along the lines of: "This...View More
Generally speaking, it does not. The deed for real property generally takes preference over any estate planning document in place, such as a will or a trust. For the property which had a joint tenancy, both of the individuals listed would be co-owners. However, if another property had just one...View More
He wants to add me to the house title or deed and give it to me through a trust. He owes @$20,000 in property taxes and $60,000 on the mortgage. I believe he has a revocable trust now that needs only to be amended. However, we are unsure about possible issues that may arise due to the deferred... View More
I recommend that your father return to his estate planning attorney to discuss the pros and cons of adding someone to the title of his house. With few exceptions, at his death the mortgage will very likely need to be paid off and the property taxes will need to be paid. If the mortgage company...View More
I bought a property in Toledo OR last March and a water line broke, I understand that it is my responsibility to fix the damage because the water meter is on my property. It is located across the street on a hill. I was not told by escrow or my realitor that I actually owned the road in front of... View More
Despite the fact that you are a senior this isn't actually an elder law question. You may do better posting this in the topic of real estate. As far as I know the realtor had no duty to warn you that your property taxes were likely to increase in the future. You would have been able to see...View More
I own 20 acres and I am the sole owner of it. I am married but my husband is not on the deed. Our neighbors obtained stalking orders against him regarding his shooting on my property. I was pregnant at the time and he didn't want me to stress in fear of losing the baby so he didn't tell... View More
In most cases, a contract requires the consent of all parties involved. If your husband entered into a contract regarding activities on your property without your knowledge or consent, it may raise questions about the validity and enforceability of that contract. However, legal matters can be...View More
I recommend consulting with a licensed attorney who specializes in Indian law and/or land law in Oregon to obtain accurate and relevant legal advice. They can help you navigate the specific details of your situation and provide guidance on your rights and options.
You have no right to terminate a fixed term lease before the lease termination date unless it is for cause. It is, after all, the whole point of a fixed term - both sides are assured of maintaining the situation for the length of the lease. If they are willing to voluntarily move, that is...View More
